Igbo presidency possible after Buhari's 8 years - Adighije

Igbo presidency possible after Buhari's 8 years - Adighije

As politicians from the South East continue to react to the call for a president from the Igbo extraction ahead of the 2019 politi­cal calculations, a chief­tain of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) Senator Chris Adighije has stated that the APC remains the quickest vessel for the South East to actual­ise their quest for Igbo presidency.
Adighije, however, stated that the dream of Igbo presidency can only be actualised after eight years of President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration, add­ing that the President should be given the op­portunity to complete his task of re branding Nigeria by running for another four-year term in 2019.
According to him, no individual or geo-politi­cal zone should be wish­ing President Buhari death because he wants to become President.
He said, “I believe that God helping us, Presi­dent Buhari would serve out his eight years. His life is in the hands of God. I cannot be wish­ing Buhari to die be­cause an Igbo man wants to be President. I believe that Buhari would serve out his eight years and if anything was to the contrary, we will cross the bridge when we get there.”
However, some Igbo politicians and also the former President, Chief Olusegun Obasanjo are of the opinion that the South East geo-political zone should be giving a chance in the major po­litical parties in 2019 to contest the Presidency.
On why the Igbo poli­ticians are joining APC, Adighije said, “When you look at the political analysis, for me the APC remains the shortest way possible for the Presi­dency to go to the South East by calculation.
